Im talking about people who play basketball here in real life.


People say Im like Alonzo Mourning. I have this knack to block shots and is very commited on the defensive end. At the same time, Im also like Mark price (Former Cleveland Cavalier All Star) because I can drain the three like no other but If you looks at me, I dont look like I got game.

I prefer to play like Rashard Lewis (when he was on the Supersonics) on offence; take long-midrange jumpers over guys and post up smaller guys down-low. And Dwight Howard on defense; patrol the paint, deny any layups/dunks and get a ****-load of rebounds

With that being said, sometimes I have to carry my team on offense and will carry out PG duties, in which case I play it like Tony Parker; slash towards the rim and finish with a floater/layup/dunk or dish when doubled/tripled. And on defense I am sometimes forced to guard the best offensive player and will guard him on-ball, in which case I play like Bruce Bowen; harass the offensive player and try to play dirty without getting caught.

Probably like Rafer Alston if he played more of his street version in the NBA. I play PG and I'm best in full court games. I like to use my handles to shake a defender and drive to the basket and I'm a streaky 3 point shooter with a pretty good mid range jumper. I also love making flashy passes on fast breaks and in the half court to get my teammates a lot of open lay-ups.

I'm 5'10 and almost always run the point but i can and do play off guard. I have the ability to guard players much taller especially in the post. My footwork usually isn't good enough to defend quick PGs so I'm best matched up against a 2 or 3 that likes to post. I also pride myself on help defense and getting into the passing lanes. Offensively my 3 point shot has disappeared. I can hit jumpers from the elbow but mostly I drive to the hoop. My biggest strength is getting inside and either finishing or drawing contact. If there is a good inside defender i often stop short, somewhere in or near the paint and knock down fade aways. I can out rebound anyone my size and can rebound with taller players. When I was in good shape i loved to push the ball whenever I grabbed a board.

I don't who this resembles most, i think i'm similar to Iverson but with fewer ill advised shots. When I had longish hair a couple guys mentioned Nash, more recently Derrick Rose for my propensity to get into the paint.

I can play the 1,2,and 3. I like to shoot from the corners like Rip and Sam C. I like to drive and spin to the hoop like Paul Pierce. Under control of course. I shoot from all ranges and I am a above average at contested layups (left and right hand, don't matter).My jump shot form is very similar to Dwayne Wade's. What I want the most is that low post game that Kevin Mchale has. Where he fakes people out with his pivots and shot fakes. 3 players who do it the best are Tim Duncan, Al Jefferson, and Kevin Garnett.

Kobe24MVP
10-25-2009, 06:08 PM
I'd say Kevin Love, I'm a big man who mostly shoots midrange j's but can rebound with the best of them

Byronicle
10-25-2009, 06:18 PM
Offensively:
I like to run a lot, pass, shoot mid range jumpers, and once i get it going i like to fake it and drive to the net for a layup. but ill also set screens, sneak in for easy layups and can do some pretty good post up moves

Defensively:
Im not a shot blocker but i play good enough defence to alter shots, put a hand in their face, make life very difficult and not allow players to get easy buckets. i also steal pretty good too

Personality:
I am like a scrapper who does the hustle plays, including offensive rebounds, doing the hard fouls on huge *** guys, playing the sport with a hockey mentality

So if i was a player i say a hybrid of Kobe just not as great, with a variety of offensive arsenals, but not great in any in particular

and defensively a mix between Bruce Bowen and Reggie Evans, a pain in the ***

Not a very good shooter though, can hit open jumpers.

Defense: Dunno who to compare it too. Can block shots, good hands to get steals, good on ball D

i like to drive to the basket like Harris, except i can't dunk. i can clutch my layups and draw a foul (if i'm playing by legit rules) but they usually miss. Other than that, my jumper is 50/50. Goes in, goes out. i don't take 10 shots. i take around 2 jumpers. LOL. And i'd rather assist if i see someone open rather take a shot.

I do like my defensive game more. I can actually stick with a person and contest them pretty good.

10-25-2009, 10:26 PM
I get a lot of Dirk and D-Wade.

Dirk because I'm tall and white and shoot a lot of threes and a lot off the dribble. Wade because I get blocks from behind, have a solid crossover and I do the euro step move that Wade does as my go-to to the basket.

Dude you're an idiot, the point of this thread is to name the player who's game resembles yours... Now if I'm playing with a good PG, I`ll take long-midrange jumpers on offense and post guys down-low if my shot isn't falling, seeming as how I'm 5'11" and 225lbs (cut) so I have the size; on defense, I stay in the paint, guarding the biggest guy on the opposing team and reject shots and go for boards; now name a player who plays like that... you can't can you, like I said before Lewis-type offense and Howard-type defense. When playing without a strong PG, I have to handle the ball, in which case, I look to drive and finish at the rim or dish if doubled/tripled; on defense, if I don't have another strong outside defender, I guard the opposing team's best offensive player, in which case, I try to use my size and speed to keep myself between him and the basket; I guess you can call that a Parker-type player.

Now I'm nowhere near as good as any of these guys obviously, but I play an extremely varied game so it's hard to name one player that I play like. Again the point of the thread is to name the player who's game resembles yours, not who you're better than or anything, no need to get your panties wet buds.

As for my game, I would love to say Im like Wade or B.Roy, but I think realistically Im like a right-handed Tayshaun Prince. Im pretty tall and lanky, with long skinny arms. I like to grab rebounds and block some shots. On offense, I can hit the outside shot on occasion, but prefer slashing to rim and trying to find others with a better look along the way.

JKidd-- I look to pass more often, I always wanna guard the best player of the opposing team (as long as hes not like 7'0"), I always do not blame a teammate for something thats bad thats happened during the game instead I always tell them to get over it, always look for a fastbreak opportunity..... But I shoot more accurately than Kidd (at least in my and my friends opinion). They told me that im more of a Billups than Kidd because of my shooting :)

I used to say just AI.... but now since Melo came into the L i added that low post and agressive rebounding to my game. :D

Scottie Pippen/Steph Jackson.... I have an all around game kinda like a jack of all trades but I am always the first one to throw down in a brawl as well... even if it means going into the stands

LeBron James.
I never pass the ball n I just drive the lane and hope for a called foul.

my game is a lot like how shareef abdur rahims game was if he were 6'2 lol. ive perfected the turn around fadeaway. n i have this crazy thing like kobe when i take shots towards the end of a game. n i go one fire. cant miss. n at those moments i tend to make contested shots more than semi open shots. im not saying im even close to the level of play as these nba players. but i know if anyone says they have any part of game kobe has they will come off as crazy. Was the best in highschool as a junior if thats any consolation lol

He never passes the ball but nearly averages 8 assists per game...
